This medieval belt is based on 15th century originals excavated in the medieval town of London. The buckle and fittings that are used in the belt are based on an original made of pewter and not of pewtered bronze or iron. From the 15th century onwards belts with pewter fittings and buckles increased in popularity. Pewter is cheap, so also lower classes in society could afford a belt with pewter decoration. The decorations on this belt are made in the Late Gothic style. The belt is made of brown cowhide. The belt tongue is made of pewtered brass, which is more solid than pure pewter.
